Jesus Christ is the foundation of Christian belief. Salvation entirely depends on Jesus Christ, his divine and eternal origin, his purity, holiness and righteousness, his love, kindness, solidarity and mercy, his voluntary suffering, his death on the cross and his resurrection.
Jesus Christ came to take the punishment for our sins and thus, unite humanity with God. He came to give forgiveness for sins through his sacrifice. He came to enable eternal salvation so that we can dwell with God for eternity.
In a secular atheistic world one never get to know spiritual truths. Because the world is moving towards its destruction and ruin and stands ready to receive the Antichrist, I consider it necessary to try to explain basic truths and spiritual truths and the historical timeline.

Foundations of Christian belief, fundamental truths as I see it
1. God exists and He is eternal.
2. God has created the whole universe, planet Earth and all life on planet Earth. The world was perfect in the beginning.
3. The Jewish Bible – the Tanach and the books of the Christian New testament is the inspired word of God.
4. God loves us and wants friendship with us and he also wants our worship, attention, love, prayers, obedience and submission.
5. Lucifer, an angel of God became proud and sinned against God. Lucifer or Satan as we now call him wanted to be higher than God. He wanted to be worshiped as God himself. He wanted to put his throne above God's throne.
6. Lucifer, Satan was thrown out of heaven and down to Earth. One third of God's angels who participated in Lucifers, Satans rebellion was also thrown out of heaven.
7. Their sins will never be forgiven and God has prepared an eternal lake of fire for them as their punishment.
8. In the beginning of Earth's history God created a man and a woman and put them in a perfect paradise, the Garden of Eden.
9. God gave the humans only one rule to follow: don't eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. So: before they sinned and ate the fruit so they did not even know what evil was. They had no knowledge of evil. They lived in harmony with God and each other, they were good, they did no harm. Everything was good and God's law ruled. These first humans were not robots. They had a free will, they had a choice. And they lived in a good choice of life.
10. Satan was allowed to tempt the woman and she fell for the temptation and sinned against God. She obeyed Satan and was disobedient against God and ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The woman sinned.
11. The woman tempted the man so that he also sinned and ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The man sinned.
12. Both humans that where perfect from the beginning and lived in a perfect world in total harmony sinned and were disobedient against God, their Creator.
13. This sinful act is called the original sin and it has had disastrous consequences in the whole of creation and it still has. Even if the world is still good and beautiful, we also now live in a fallen, evil world. The sin is spreading and is inherited from generation to generation and this is called inherited sin.
14. The harmony in the creation was destroyed because of sin and the harmony in the world is not perfect anymore.
15. Death is one consequence of sin.
16. Humanity has lost the glory of God because of sin and can not dwell with God in his paradise anymore, the sin separates humanity from God.
17. Disobedience to God is sin.
18. Paradise have started decaying.
19. Humanity has rebelled against God's order and has rejected his law and commandments and wants itself to be God.
20. Early in Earth's history God decided to kill all life on Earth because everything was so full of evil. God flooded the whole Earth with water and killed all life except Noah and his family plus some animals. God found Noah righteous and asked him to build an Ark to save him and his family and also animals. Only Noah and his family with three sons and their wives were saved to re-populate Earth.
21. We mostly worship other things instead of God. We praise each other and we worship ourselves.
22. We often love material things, money, pleasure, sex, luxury etc more than we love God and this is called idol worship.
23. Idol worship is a sin strictly prohibited by God. God has said: You shall have no other Gods before me. In addition to idol worship we as humans also do other sins every day. More or less we all sin which means we think, say or do things that God does not want us to do. God's ten commandments shows how God wants us to live.
24. God still loves us even though we are sinners. God wants our fellowship anyways. God is merciful. God is love.
25. God has a plan for our eternal salvation and has arranged so that someone else took the punishment for our sins so that we would be forgiven and be able to dwell with God.
26. God's plan for our salvation is a holy and pure sacrifice for our sins.
27. God's plan for our salvation is through Jesus Christ, God's own son who was willing to suffer and die for the sins of the world. Jesus Christ took the punishment for our sins and crimes.
28. Jesus Christ is another name of Yeshua which means salvation. Jesus Christ is the son of God. Jesus Christ is the Messiah.
29. Jesus Christ is part of the father himself. Jesus Christ existed before Earth was created. Jesus Christ, God and the Holy spirit are all one together. God is triune. This is called the Holy Trinity - Father Son and Holy spirit. God is three persons, yet He is one.
30. Jesus Christ was born in the bloodline of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and king David. Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born about 2000 years ago by a virgin - Mary. Many prophecies in the Written Torah (Old Testament) was fulfilled by Jesus Christ
31. Jesus Christ lived a 100% holy life. He never sinned. He performed miracles, healed sick, raised people from the dead and yet he was accused as a criminal and sentenced to death.
32. Jesus Christ died by crucifixion but resurrected on the third day. Jesus Christ defeated death and today he sits on the right hand of the Father in heaven.
33. Through his divinity, holy life, suffering, death, resurrection love and mercy Jesus Christ has the authority to forgive sins and grant eternal life.
34. The offer to get one's sins forgiven and to get eternal life, to get salvation is open to all humans.
35. Jesus Christ will be the judge on the great day of the Lord. All humans that belong to him will get salvation and escape the wrath of God's judgment over sin.
36. Salvation and eternal life is given through faith in Jesus Christ, confession of Him as Lord, water baptism in his name. Salvation is a free gift from God.
37. "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
38. The anti-Christ and the mark of the beast. Those who don't accept or understand that the historic Jesus Christ from Nazareth is the Messiah will worship anti-Christ. The Bible says that in the last days there shall come an evil world leader that will deceive and enslave many people. Satan, the devil will have full control over this person and the whole world will become extremely evil and unlawful, sinful and filthy by then. This is probably very near us who are living now 2016, only a few years away. Below are Bible verses that talks about the evil dictatorship and the satanic new world system that is about to come. You can call him the anti-Christ or the beast. I think that the beast can be both a person and the world system itself. I think that the prophecies in Daniel 7:7, 2 Thessalonians 2:4, Matthew 24:15-16, Revelation 13:16-18, Revelation 14:11 all talks about our time right now 2016-2022.

"After this I kept looking in the night visions, and I saw a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. Daniel 7:7

He will oppose and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. 2 Thessalonians 2:4

“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains." Matthew 24:15-16

And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom needed. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666. Revelation 13:16-18

And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.” Revelation 14:11
39. The rapture of the church. Many Christians believe that God will bring his true congregation up into paradise before the great tribulations starts. We don't know this as a fact, if it will happen before the great tribulations starts but many believe this will happen before the great tribulation. I also believe that, it seems most likely, and that means it can happen anytime. But this might also happen at the very end of time which means that all people will have to suffer through the horrific tribulations of the end times. Regardless of how you see it, all Christians agree on that this event will happen some day, sooner or later. All dead Christians will first be resurrected, graves all over the earth will be opened up. After this all true Christians will also be brought up into paradise. The Bible does not specify how much time there is between these two events namely: 1. the resurrection and rapture of the dead Christians and 2: the rapture of the Christians that are alive on Earth by that time. I think that it is likely that many Christians who are left behind will deny what just happened because their shame will be to big. Therefore they will listen to the messages of the anti-Christ world. And they will be deceived to both recieve the mark of the beast and also bow down and worship the image of the beast. All people who does these things will be doomed to hell forever.
40. In the end of time the satanic anti-Christ system will rule the whole Earth. The Bible says that God will give the beast "one hour" to rule the Earth. How long time is this? One month? I don't know. In the very last days seven bowls of the wrath of God will be poured over the earth. This will be the most horrific and cruel period in Earth's history. Immorality, sin, lawlessness and evil will dominate everything. The suffering and evil will be total.
41. As you see, sin is the big problem for humanity as it separates us from God. If it were not for Jesus Christ, we would suffer the wrath of God against our sins and receive eternal punishment and eternal suffering. Our good works can't save us. Our own good will can not achieve eternal salvation, for even if we do good deeds we also do sin. Therefore, Jesus Christ is so incredibly important to us because he is holy. Confess the name of Jesus Christ loudly and publicly among other people. Confess Him as your Lord and God. Hold the name of Jesus Christ high. Honor him! Be baptized in water in His name. Have faith in Jesus Christ, that he is the son of God. Believe that He died for your sins and that God resurrected him from the dead. Make him your lord, and say it out loud with your mouth. Follow his commandments and his teachings. Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then you will be saved, saved from God's wrath.
42. Many churches say that sin is not very important. They teach that God does not care about sin at all. These churches are the ones that will embrace the anti-Christ and the anti-Christ world system. Don't listen to these demonic teachings. Go to churches where Biblical truth is preached, while it's still legal to hear God's true word.
43. How shall I live as a Christian? Remember that your faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation for your salvation. Try to follow Jesus example. Keep him as your role model. When you fail and sin, he will forgive you if you ask him, and you repent your sin - and if you love him. Obedience is important to God. Stay away from sin. There will also come a judgment day.
44. Jesus Christ millennial reign versus the satanic new age. The Bible says that Jesus Christ will rule the whole world for 1000 years. If the world suddenly proclaims world peace and says that Jesus has returned and now rules the world: how would the world look like? A world peace can be evil. World peace can still be revolting against God. If these sins are encouraged and supported by society: adultery, being unfaithful in marriage, homosexuality and lesbianism, fornication, promiscuity, porn, idolatry, then Jesus Christ does not rule the world. It is possible for Christians, Jews and Muslims to live in world peace but at the same time rebel against God. I believe that the world peace that will come soon will be evil and satanic. Yes there will be world peace but it will be a system that turns away from God.
